Amateur professional presents: Puppy dream 101 (with sound)

I AM SOOO CHUFFED WITH MYSELF - impressed - I simply can't contain myself (*If only my ears would step aside I would have a 360* smile*) Haha

No one even knew that little (Snow)bell was pregnant, and the next thing the pup was discovered. Aaah, suddenly a few things from the past few weeks made perfect sense. It makes me think of pulling a rabbit out of a hat as a magic trick and for that reason I'm going to refer to the little one as Shizam. (At the time of this post no name has formally been selected.)

Since his discovery I've been very facinated with him and have been taking pictures every day (honing my photography skills). In my observing him the idea dawned on me to shoot a few video clips of him sleeping. Low and behold - at only 5 days old - he was dreaming! He is not yet able to see or walk, let alone bark, but in his dream all of that is totally irrelevant! :)

Ok, so to get back to what I'm so chuffed about... I am so proud of the little video clip that I've made! Wow! Wow! Wow! It was an awesome learning curve on Windows Movie Maker, as well as I managed to shoot the material in such a way that I didn't feel seasick (as was the case with the very first video clip I recorded with my camera). I simply LOVED editing the clips, selecting and adding the back ground music, creating the intro, etc. I had a BALL! I hope you enjoy viewing it as much as I enjoyed creating it! Feel free to let me know what you think :)

The dreaming pup reminded me again that we are also born to dream! We should embrace it with more passion, more confidence and less fear and doubt. You can read more of my thoughts on this inspirational experience here

I am convinced that I will be taking more video's and I'm hoping to hone my skill beautifully, brilliantly :)
